Infected Mangrove Leaves

The first inoculation trial was successful in that we were able to re-isolate the fungus (Pestalotiopsis) we infected leaves with from small, developing lesions. The second trial is underway and as you can see from the feature image, we are seeing similar lesion symptoms we see in the field in the lab. We have to re-isolate from this lesion and sequence the fungal DNA to ensure that the same fungus resulted in this type of lesion. More updates to come!

My general research interests lie in the ecology of marine coastal ecosystems. I am most interested in the role plant diseases have in shaping the ecology of coastal and estuarine environments. I am currently studying the role of a plant pathogen in a die-off of Red Mangroves in The Bahamas. Follow Ryann Rossi
